Food maven, humorist, and Villager Calvin Trillin is a staff writer at The New Yorker. Each guest will receive a copy of his new anthology Quite Enough of Calvin Trillin: Forty Years of Funny Stuff.

The Russ & Daughters family: Mark Russ Federman, third-generation owner emeritus, is at work on his forthcoming book, Russ & Daughters: The House that Herring Built; Niki Russ Federman and her cousin Josh Russ Tupper are the fourth-generation co-owners of the 98-year-old appetizing store on East Houston Street, which is providing the “nosh” for this event.

Praise for Russ & Daughters

This is that rarity in the New York food world: The purveyor beloved by everyone from street thugs and city politicians to chefs like locavore Peter Hoffman and lion Marco Pierre White. (“It was the finest quality fish!” White enthused by recent letter.) Russ & Daughters has been profiled by PBS, canonized by Martha, lauded at length by Calvin Trillin in nearly everything he writes and even immortalized in a 2008 J. Crew catalog, all for good reason. Because the hand-whipped, eat-it-by-the-spoonful scallion-cream cheese, the chocolate-covered jelly rings, the egg creams spritzed with real bottles of Brooklyn seltzer, that salmon—each bite an alchemy of smoke and fatthe tins of caviar and trays of whitefish salad and luscious chopped liver and latkes (those last few made from scratch in the back) at Russ & Daughters are just as good as when Joel Russ first handed over the title of the shop to Ida, Hattie and Anne in 1933. —Edible Manhattan, March/April 2010.
